Miss Fury #5 Dynamite Entertainment

Miss Fury #5
Dynamite Entertainment

The latest Golden Age great to roll off the re-imagined production line, Miss Fury made her debut as a Sunday comic strip in 1941. Created by Tarpe Mills and originally called The Black Fury, wealthy socialite Marla Drake gained increased strength and speed when she donned a skin-tight cat suit and decided to fight crime. Well, cocktail parties can be so boring, right?

In the decades that followed, both names, Black Fury and Miss Fury were used by a variety of characters with a variety of powers depending on which publisher was picking up the tab, but in Miss Fury #5, Dynamite Comics have taken us back to the cat suit clad socialite’s origin with a story set in 1942. This time around Miss Fury has the ability to blend into the shadows and tackles foes both human and supernatural, which is just as well because Miss Fury #5 pitches us straight into the action as Miss Fury takes on a whole boatload of animal-mask-wearing Satanists and proves that when it comes to fisticuffs she is certainly no lady!

The pace in Miss Fury #5 is fast and furious, the writing pared down and punchy, the art glossy and awe inspiring. In short, this is Miss Fury as she was always meant to be.  Another winner from Dynamite who are definitely living up to their name and are clearly going from strength to strength with this comic book!!!.
